A rough collision led to Yoan Moncada being carted off the field.
The Chicago White Sox called up Yoan Moncada less that two weeks ago.
Moncada, one of the top prospects in baseball, had a short stint with the Boston Red Sox before being traded by the team, along with other pieces, for Chris Sale.
On Monday night, Moncada was involved in a scary collision with fellow outfielder Willy Garcia.
Here’s the collision:

Both players left the game, and Moncada needed to be carted off the field, which suggests a bad knee injury. It’s terrible news for the White Sox and Moncada, who was looked at as an important piece for the team’s rebuilding efforts.
It looks like Moncada will be okay.

That’s great news for Moncada and the team.
